Went on a Sunday lunchtime in December. Weather was awful. Food was great. 'cataplana' pork clams and potatoes, fish pie and prawn curry. No complaints at all. Very generous portions, good service and excellent wine. Must easily be the best place to eat in Cabanas.

We were taken here today (1/12/16) by friends from Spain. 4 of us had Fish and Chips with Mushy Peas. One had Fish Pie. Fantastic, fresh Fish, great. When we had eaten the fish, another piece of fish appeared, this happened 3 times. We are often disappointed with Fish and Chips in England ( except Whitby, in North Yorkshire )... More

3 of us visited this restaurant lunch time yesterday and we were not disappointed - 1 fish soup & 2 garlic prawns to start with. These were delicious. We all had the fish & chips for main course and again these were great. The fish used was called 'Trigger fish' so no bones. Homemade tartar sauce delicious. They even asked... More

Had been recommended this resto , and finally got a chance to visit. I'll go back, it was excellent. Great food, good service, great views . Very helpful as well with my wheelchair bound friend as the resto is on the first floor, but the staff helped us get him up there.

Genuinely great food, friendly service and a fab location. Definitely try and get a table on the balcony. The steak on a hot stone if brilliant with the Parmesan sauce and as many have mentioned, the mixed fish grill is huge and very tasty.

It is true. Order fish and chips and they keep coming until you say stop. Friendly staff, buzzing atmosphere, just great. Went twice in one week - same quality. BUT get there early (before 7pm) or you will be disappointed - because it will be full.
